I want to express my gratitude to all the YL & OM who call me and they
made it possible to complete the QSO, this is my first time doing the CQ WW
160 SSB mode, to be honest I thought it would be easier, but it was not.
Accustomed more to CW was a real challenge, fighting splatters from others
station near my frequency, QSB and digging to catch those very light station
Related to the propagation, Friday allow to log some stations from EU, but
Saturday was much better, allowing bigger signals and more stations from EU,
some of those very loud and no problem passing over the splatters, Many
stations calling me from EU did not make it in my log due to the difficulty to
copy and the pile ups in some moments from many stations, related to this I
want to thank all those who calling me and calling me repeating the call
fighting the noise to make possible the QSO and many a new multiplier to keep
me interested in this ugly and noisy conditions, many times think to quit but
this little “lights” keep me in the chair.
I want to salute all XE that calling me giving the opportunity to first time
have a phone QSO , Muchas gracias.
At the moment have no plans to repeat the 160m Phone “ torture” as SO,
but I will look seriously a Multi-Op to have the chance to rest my voice,
this time I return home coughing very hard and with a very bad bruised throat,
thanks to the voice Keyer I’m able to talk, that was the nasty side, the
excellent news was that accessing my LoTW account to load my log, receiving
a big surprise finally the country #100 in 160m QSL, seconds later I made my
application and was accepted today making my day.
